TIOX OF WEIGHT.
Wolgast Accused of Dodging Match
la Order to Meet Dundee in
SAM FRANCISCO. May 1. (Special.)
Inabllltv to come to terms on the
weight question has resulted In calling
eft the Burns-Wolgast 10-round match
that was to take place In Oakland on
Wednesday night. May 21.
The calling off of the match followed
the rrrival of Manager Tom Jones
from Harbin Borings. Jones told Pro
moter Rowan that he wouldn't think
of letting the Oakland lightweight
come In at 133 pounds at 8 o'clock. He
insisted at first upon 134 pounds ring
side and later said the weight must be
133 pounds ringside or perhaps an hour
Burns would not listen to any such
arrangement. He said that under or
dinary conditions he could make 134
pounds ringside easily enough, but
that he was not of a mind to be
rushed to make the weight and that
he would refuse to do so.
The promoters agreed that the
chances did not look good for bring
ing the boys together and decided to
cancel the engagement and look for
some other card. The Oakland people
are inclined to blame Jones and to In
sinuate that Wolgast is looking for
an "out" In order to accept a pros
pective match with Johnny Dundee In

Hogan yesterday, "but not until I see
that he gets proper treatment, finan
cially, by the class B team."
"Rip" Hagerman will be the sole
property of the Portland Coast team
after today. Manager McCredie de
cided yesterday to pay the balance of
the 31500 due on the purchase price of
the big Lincoln pitcher. By the terms
of purchase Portland paid 31000 cash
last Winter and had until May 1 to
fork over the balance of the $2500.
